Dear members and friends of Eurojumelages,


 peter deco2during the Christmas season we take time for people who are important to us, we are happy with visits, letters, e-mails and phone calls. We feel: we belong together, we are connected to each other.

We depend on unity and understanding in our families, at work and also in our Eurojumelages network.

But unity and understanding do not happen automatically. The Eurojumelages community thrives on people taking responsibility, getting involved and participating. Despite the Corona pandemic ,I was able to meet and get to know many of these people at various events this year.

Even in this difficult time of the Corona pandemic, they have faced the special challenges and kept the association "alive".

In contrast to 2020 – in this manner some events could take place again under observance of appropriate precautionary measures:

The OSCAR in June in Wroclaw, which was held as a hybrid event this year, the boules tournament in August in my region, as well as the language courses in Montpellier in September and in Benidorm in November.

Numerous regional events of the individual sections could also be organised again.

On the other hand, it was painful - both for the organizers and the participants - that the Christmas event in Dresden had to be cancelled at a short notice due to official orders.

At this point I would like to express my special thanks to the organizers who made the events possible under difficult conditions this year. I would also like to thank the members and friends of Eurojumelages who took part in the events. Such meetings shape the life of the association. The joy of reunion among the participants was very great at the individual meetings, which makes me optimistic for the events in 2022.

I wish you and your families a merry Christmas and a healthy start to 2022.

Let us look forward to the new year with confidence!

With European Christmas greetings


Yours sincerely, Peter Backes
